Bodybuilder admits trafficking in steroids
Monday, August 01, 2011
By Torsten Ove, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
A French bodybuilder waived indictment this morning in federal court in Pittsburgh and pleaded guilty to distributing anabolic steroids supplied from China and shipped from Tennessee to an undercover agent in Pittsburgh posing as a customer.

Karim Mourahib, 30, appeared before U.S. District Judge Donetta Ambrose and admitted that he imported illegal injectable steroids, distributed them in the U.S. through online orders in France and then wired money back to Chinese sources.

The steroids were shipped to Chattanooga, Tenn., where four men are under investigation in connection with the distribution ring.

The case began in April 2010, when an undercover Food and Drug Administration agent - a former Pittsburgh police officer - contacted an e-mail address used by Mr. Mourahib to sell steroids, according to an FDA affidavit. The agent began a correspondence that led to controlled purchases and deliveries to a Pittsburgh undercover address.

The shipments were traced to Tennessee, where agents set up surveillance on a man named Jordan Robbs, who is one of the four under investigation in that state. The IRS also tracked the wire transfer payments to China, where the affidavit identifies the source as Tingwin Wang of Shanghai.

Mr. Mourahib was arrested in Miami in September on a visit to the United States. He is being held in federal custody pending sentencing in November.

More details in tomorrow's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

I'm wondering why they suddenly knew to look for Jordan Robbs in this story. There had to be a rat for that to happen.

All I have to say is unbelievable, tax dollars wasted again. Also these other boards should put higher restrictions in place to protect these guys a bit more as well. They are asking to get caught.
